Government Access Channel
SGTV Channel 30/330 HD is Shrewsbury's Government Access Channel. Programming is only available through Shrewsbury Community Cablevision.

Mission
SGTV is a community resource that provides access to government information via cable technology for the Shrewsbury community.

Programs
Government television in Shrewsbury began with Town Meeting coverage in 1987. In February of 2002, a separate access channel dedicated to government access was created on SGTV 30. Today, government access continues to provide this important public service with regular coverage of:
  • Every session of Town Meeting
  • Live Board of Selectmen meetings
  • Monthly taping of Ask The Manager
  • Sessions of municipal or regional boards
Government Access gives a media voice to municipal government and provides citizens with a window into the workings of our municipal (and, from time to time, state and federal) government. Currently, this programming is shown exclusively on Shrewsbury Media Connection, Channel 30/330 HD.

Policy
Our policy for all meetings televised by Government Access, whether live or taped, provides for coverage that is:
  • Gavel-to-gavel: You see the entire meeting as if you were there.
  • Unbiased: No outside commentary or analysis is added.
  • Uncensored: We exercise no control over the content of the telecast.
  • Unedited: No information is removed or changed for time or other reasons
